Sri Lanka

An island of national parks venerated temples, tea plantations, and rose-gold beaches: Sri Lanka
packs in plenty of experiences. Our Travel consultants can help you plan a Sri Lanka holiday that
encompasses your interests and shows you lesser-visited corners of the island.

A Sri Lanka adventure if you’re short of time, this one-week itinerary offers you the highlights of
Sri Lanka in a convenient 7-day trip. Offering balmy, equatorial temperatures, diverse wildlife,
dramatic landscape from fragrant spice gardens to central highlands and vibrant culture and
history, this is a place that will leave you wanting to come back for more. You will visit an
elephant orphanage, see a traditional Puja ceremony and visit a tea factory to see how pure
Ceylon tea is produced on this mini-adventure.

Maldives

Maldives is home to perhaps the best beaches in the world; they’re on almost every one of the country’s nearly 1200 islands and are so consistently perfect that it’s hard not to become blasé about them. While some beaches may boast softer granules than others, the basic fact remains: you won’t find consistently whiter-than-white powder sand and luminous cyan-blue water like this anywhere else on earth. This fact alone is enough to bring well over a million people a year to this tiny, remote and otherwise little-known Indian Ocean paradise.

Every resort in Maldives is its own private island, and with over 100 to choose from the only problem is selecting where you want to stay. At the top end, the world’s most exclusive hotel brands compete with each other to attain ever-greater heights of luxury, from personal butlers and private lap pools to in-room massages and pillow menus. It’s not surprising that honeymooners and those seeking a glamorous tropical getaway have long had the country at the very top of their wish lists. But there’s also plenty of choice beyond the five- and six-star resorts.

As always, we are able to tinker with this itinerary if you wish and add an extra night here and
there. We can also discuss other hotel or villa options
